Lynnikka is really supportive and has been really great while I dealt with a difficult life situation that I was confronted with. She has been great; and gave me unexpected feedback that was really supportive.

Lynnikka Draper is a highly experienced and intelligent therapist. She takes the time to listen to what my concerns are and responds to them in a nonjudgmental way. I highly recommend Lynnikka.

I like how she asks questions. It helps me think about what's really going on in my head.
